Big Conversation Panel Survey

The Big Conversation Panel has been created so that we can hear directly from you. By signing up to the Big Conversation Panel you will be asked to take part in three surveys spread over 12-months. 

 COVID-19 has been a big part of our lives for many months. Survey 1 focused on the how COVID-19 has affected you and your family. The results of survey 1 can be found here.

 Survey 2 explored a range of topics and asks you questions about your health and wellbeing, the environment, tourism and more!  The results for survey 2 can be found here

The third survey will be open from 1 June – 30 June and you can complete it online at:

Survey three will ask your opinion on the Big Conversation Panel as well as other issues such as road safety, wellbeing and loneliness and how we can ensure you have access to the right information. We would love to hear from you!

We will use the information collected from each of the survey responses to inform the next steps on our road to recovery as well as the longer-term implementation of our Community Plan priorities. 

If you would prefer a hard copy of the survey or you are an individual with additional needs, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch with us either by:

*The Big Conversation is managed by Ards and North Down Borough Council on behalf of Ards and North Down's Strategic Community Planning Partnership.

The Big Conversation has been used in the past to give residents the opportunity to give their views on a range of issues and public services. This helped us to develop the Big Plan for Ards and North Down – our 15-year plan for the borough.
